This is the view out our window today. In Israel, we receive all of our rain between November and May. No rain dates needed for picnics in the summer! In a country filled with sun most of the time, these dreary days are actually a nice change. It is a good day to play instrumental music, drink tea and bake…and prepare for Shabbat!
It is great news that the U.S. plans to reduce funding to the Palestinians. The money the Palestinians receive never makes it to the people. It is used by their terrorist leaders and it must be stopped. These celebrities and others who come out and slam the decision have most likely never been to Israel, do not understand that territories which transfer from Israeli administration to Palestinian administration become terrorist-filled anti-Christian areas. We personally know Palestinians who have told us of the increased persecution once Israeli troops withdraw.
I just spoke to Baruch on the phone. He held a small event in the Los Angeles area and we want to thank everyone who attended. He was so glad to meet each of you!
